For those who're wondering what is it, that s solargraphy, a 6 months single exposure from one solstice to the other. (21/12/2011 -> 21/06/2012)

Cameras are made with tin can, photo sensitive paper (not film) a very small hole for the lens, and the most important point, a safe place to keep the cam static and water resistant for 6 months :D

What you see is actually the sun path during 6 months, the dots along the lines are simply clouds. The curvature of the can acts as a fisheye, so you can seen both sunrise and sunset.

a bon exemple de degats causes par la pluie
